    Hi all,
    When I pre-ordered my center speaker online, I was told it was biwirable (2 pairs of binding posts). So I bought a single Bettercables speaker cable, with the biwired configuration (2 terminated spades for the amplifier end, and 4 on the speaker end), before I received my center speaker. Now that I have the center, I find out it has only a single pair of binding posts.
    Can I still connect both positive terminations to the single positive binding post on the speaker end, and the same for the negative terminations? Since it's the same signal coming through, I don't think there should be any problems, right?
    Any help is appreciated!
    Thanks!
    Regards,
    Joe

    Yes you can do that, no problem. It will of course make no difference whatsoever though (regardless of whether you had one or two sets of binding posts).

    All you'd be doing is increasing the effective gauge of the wire so there is no problem doing what you ask.
